She performed her track Go the Distance at the closing ceremony in Australia in 2018, when the games were handed over to Birmingham to host next year. But despite a global audience hearing the track she’d recorded in her bedroom in Erdington, she still didn’t feel ready to give up the day job. Now, however, she’s a full-time musician and she hasn’t looked back. After releasing mix-tapes and EPs, she’s about to record her debut album with the support of B:Music, the new name for the charity responsible for Birmingham’s Symphony Hall and Town Hall. Sanity, 27, says: “These B:Music venues are among the most well-known places for music in Birmingham but you wouldn’t really associate them with my genre of hip hop and rap. The name Symphony Hall implies classical music and might feel elitist to some, but I’ve always felt very welcome. I’ve never felt that it’s somewhere where I don’t belong or deserve to be.
